Jennifer Hudson buries family

Jennifer Hudson welcomed her American Idol competitor Fantasia Barrino to sing at the funeral of her murdered family members this week.

The singer and actress' mother Darnell Donerson, brother Jason Hudson and nephew Julian King were laid to rest at Chicago's Apolistic Church Of God at the start of the week, according to the Chacago Tribune.

All three were murdered last month in Chicago. Barrino performed Your Grace and Mercy at the service, calling the Hudsons "my family". She then walked to the aisle and sang to the bereaved Hudson personally.

Hudson and Barrino competed in the finals of the 2004 series. While Barrino won the contest, Hudson went on to win an Oscar for her role in Dreamgirls alongside Beyonce Knowles.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley both spoke at the service.

According to the Associated Press, streets were shut down by police, and a plastic covering was used over a tall gated fence to protect the family's privacy. The murders have yet to be solved.

Espero que pronto cojan al culpable y pague por lo que ha hecho.
